It’s official. Tessa & I, with a mystery guest, are doing a show in the 2019 Auckland Fringe festival. We are going to to an open-mic where Tessa is the MC & I am all but one of the acts.
We’ve renamed the show, previously Stand-up in a Skirt, to 10 Years a Comedian, 3 in a Skirt.

This gives the authenticity of the historical performance coupled with my vastly improved performance skills.
We’ll be performing it 20th to 23rd of February. The first two days at the Pump House in Takapuna and the last two at TST Studio in Eden Terrace.
Following our joint show, Tessa will be doing her solo show. Same nights, same venue. We’re looking at some way of doing joint ticketing for loyal fans.
